Singer Lauryn Hill faces federal tax charges

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Federal prosecutors have charged five-time Grammy winner Lauryn Hill with willfully failing to file income tax returns with the IRS.

Authorities say Hill earned more than $1.6 million during the three years that she failed to file returns. Prosecutors say her primary source of income is royalties from the recording and film industries.

The 37-year-old South Orange, N.J., resident is scheduled to appear before a federal magistrate on June 29.

Hill got her start with The Fugees and began her solo career in 1998 with the critically acclaimed album, "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill."

A message left for her California-based attorney, Nathan J. Hochman, was not immediately returned.
